The theme in 2011 was “A TRIBUTE TO EDWARD HOPPER” honoring the acclaimed artist as well as the 40th anniversary of Edward Hopper House Art Center.
The poster selection is a painting by Richard Sutton of New York City. The painting shows the influence Edward Hopper has had on Mr. Sutton and brilliantly represents this year’s theme. The painting will be exhibited in p.ross on Main St. where signed and numbered posters will be for sale, as well as the original piece. “For the first time each Artist is required to create a piece, within their own medium, that is either influenced by or a tribute to Mr. Hopper,” says Paulette Ross, producer of ART WALK. “It has been quite inspiring to see the varied interpretations created by the Artists. These unique pieces will be exhibited in the Venue assigned to the Artist along with their other works and will be for sale.”
As a special treat for children, artist David Derr will hold “art class” on Sunday from 1 to 3pm at Eyevolution Optique, 42 Franklin St. Reservations are required (845-353-4701).
Throughout the Village stores are turned into mini art galleries with the Artists in residence. This year there will be 29 Venues/Artists.
Stroll up and down the streets of Nyack from Main St down Franklin and up Broadway, view and/or purchase works by the wonderfully talented Artists. Shop the stores, eat, drink and enjoy the Village.
There will be free parking all day Saturday, June 18th generously approved by our Village Board. The designated area will be the big lot behind Riverspace on Artopee Way.
